Banana Bread & Banana Chiffon Cake

I forgot since when banana started to upset my stomach whenever I have it. But I love banana cake flavored pastry.

These pastries just look like normal bread/cake, but waft a rich banana fragrance that seduces slice after slice. The moist and tender texture will make you sigh (that was what I did)

I know other people who say bananas upstep their stomach. I'm told that if you scrap the very outside layer of the peeled banana off ,they can eat the banana with no problem
